UK Fine Arts Dean Elected to International Committee

Published: Nov 5, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov 5, 2012)Dean Michael Tick, of the University of Kentucky College of Fine Arts, was elected to the nominating committee of the board of directors of the International Council of Fine Arts Deans (ICFAD). The election took place at the council's annual business meeting at their 49th annual conference held Oct. 26, in Minneapolis, Minn.

 

Tick, who has been at UK since August 2010, will serve a two-year term from 2012 to 2014. The members elected to the nominating committee are elected by the institutional member representatives. Tick’s primary responsibility as a member of the nominating committee will be focused on increasing the size of the membership.

 

"With funding cuts impacting educational and cultural institutions around the globe in extraordinary and profound ways, the importance of ICFAD and the contributions of the membership now can’t be underestimated. It is a great honor and a privilege for me to serve on the board," Tick said.

 

Founded in 1964, the ICFAD membership is comprised of more than 400 arts deans throughout North America and around the world. ICFAD is the only organization focusing exclusively on issues that impact all creative units in higher education including fine and performing arts, arts education, art history, architecture and communication.

 

ICFAD’s mission is to provide professional development, facilitate forums for the exchange of ideas, and address issues relevant to arts education in higher education.

 

Prior to joining UK, Tick was the chair of the Department of Theatre at Louisiana State University and producing artistic director of Swine Palace, the department’s Equity theatre company.

 

Before joining LSU in 1999, Tick served on the planning committee that established in 1985 the Virginia Governor’s School for the Arts (GSA). As founding chair of the GSA Department of Theatre, Tick served on the faculty of Old Dominion University.
